The temperature was quite warm, with just a slight breeze, when a carravan of cars brought the Bend art group to our lavender farm. The ladies soon scattered out around our gardens, some trying to find a bit of shade. One artist found shade at the front of my little gift shoppe, and quickly began to relax and create beauty on her paper. We love watching these creative and insightful ladies paint our little bit of heaven!
Three ladies visited our lavender farm a few days ago from Bend. They mentioned that their art group would be coming in August to paint the lavender in bloom. After looking at our lavender starter plants for planting around their homes, they asked, “which ones are hardy to our zone 3-4”? I suggested the Angustifolia “English”, it’s the True Lavender, and most hardy.
Since the sun was out for the first time in three days, they asked if it would be OK if they set-up to paint… of course it would be alright! So on a beautiful sunny day, this is how it looked, painting in the flower garden 🙂
The amount of growth in 1 week of the Lavender and the Wildflowers is mind-boggling. The Wildflowers are now almost twice as big with hundreds more in bloom, and the Lavender has heading towards bloom a ton also!
